Applications for 2020’s Great British Bake Off are officially open

The 2019 series just ended last night.

Even though there was a bit of controversy over the finale of the Great British Bake Off last night, we still thoroughly enjoyed the series.

As always, there were ups, downs and of course, soggy bottoms.

If you think you could pull of what this years’ bakers did and want to apply for next year’s show then get on it right now because applications are already open.

However, it seems like a very lengthy process with numerous rounds and interviews.

First of all, after filling out a very long application form (which you can find here), you will be called for a phone interview. If you get past that stage, producers will then ask you to travel to London to show off your baking skills.

If previous years are anything to go by, the next round will see you perform a technical challenge where you will be filmed and analysed to see if you have what it takes to make it onto the show.

The makers of the Great British Bake Off, Love Productions, say: “When selecting applicants for the Programme Love Productions will, amongst other factors take into account: skill, enthusiasm, drive and love of baking.

“Love Productions is looking for lively characters that are comfortable being filmed.”

They are also looking for a “mix” of contestant so this is a chance to show off your personality.

You have 67 days left to enter (it comes up as a big flashing sign when you click onto the application page), so you have plenty of time to apply.
